Bajaj Auto which has been teasing its premium flagship model the Dominar 400 has today launched it in the national capital at a mouth watering price. Shocking the motorcycling community, the Dominar base variant (non-ABS) is available for Rs 1.35 lakhs and the ABS version for Rs 1.5 lakhs. Both these prices are ex-showroom Delhi and the bike is available in three colors for now.
With a 373 cc single cylinder triple spark block generating about 35ps of power at 8000 rpm, the Dominar is expected to shake up the Indian biking scenario. The engine is mated to a six speed gear box and has an official top speed of 148 kms/h. Dual channel ABS, automatic headlights, a 13 ltr tank with a fuel economy of 30 kmpl should be ideal for touring.
This new entrant will directly take on the KTM Duke 390, Honda CBR 250, Benelli TNT 300, Mahindra Mojo and the soon to launch BMW 310.
We are a bit concerned about two aspects. Firstly, why is Bajaj Auto even offering a non-ABS version and secondly, the MRF tyres and their ability to control the bike at higher speeds. We do hope they provide an option to upgrade the tyres to a Michelin or Metz at additional costs.
If you are in Bangalore, you can visit the below showrooms tomorrow (16th Dec) to witness the unveiling and possibly test ride them.
